Update: Officials Think Trump Tower Fire Might Have Been an Accident
Fire officials have been trying to determine what caused the fatal fire that happened at Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue.
FDNY fire marshals have been looking through evidence. They are gathering the evidence from a Trump Tower apartment, and they do not think the fire was started intentionally.
Investigators are focusing on the 50th-floor apartment where Todd Brassner lived. Brassner, a 67-year-old art dealer, died in the fire that happened on Saturday night.
The apartment became engulfed in flames at around 5:30 in the evening.
It has also been reported that the apartment did not have sprinklers and that this fact contributed to the fire spreading.
Investigators think the fire was accidental, but they have also said that the investigation is still ongoing.
Other people who were in the building at the time of the fire have reported that elevators were not working when the fire happened.
